George Allen & Unwin, 1961 1st Editions, 11th imp/8th imp/8th imp. An exceptionally Near Fine set of first editions of this classic of fantasy literature.
The set is housed in a custom marbled paper slipcase. The set is in Near Fine condition, with no writing or signatures in any of the books. There is absolutely no foxing in any of the books. The exterior cloth is extremely clean, with the gilt untarnished and bright. The books look unread, and the maps are attached, and appear to have never been opened.
The dustjackets are in excellent shape with no chips missing, and the correct impression for the books. Only the slightest tanning of the spine on these fabulous copies. Slightest soiling or rubbing, mainly at the fold areas. A small closed tear on the fold of the jacket of the Return of the King, repaired from the inside with conservations & preservation tape.
Very unusual to find a matched set this clean and bright. Even the red topstain is unfaded.
